Always liked "All Of My Life" as well!

Security and Satisfaction doesn't ring any bells at all?

I will give it another play. It's a male artist.  The sound quality is not brilliant!

Podcast number 60!!  Never thought I'd do ten when I started this!

 

Well we have the third on the trot (fifth overall if memory serves) celebrating the modern soul that Richard Searling  was featuring in his sets, many from major labels.  A great testament to the open mindedness and diversity of the music back in the 80's.

Seems an age since I last did a podcast..I haven't forgotten the Stafford Story, I have been busy doing more research and seeking out more tracks played at the Top of The World. Finally managed to nail another hours worth of music that Jimmy Wensiora played back in the days of Stafford and Rock City. It has been tough because despite his collection not many seem to remember much about Jimmy. Here is a selection of Rare Soul, acetates and unissued that make up the 61st podcast telling the musical history of the Top Of The World All-nighters!
